thumbnail Hello,

The former Arsenal midfielder is optimistic about the Blaugrana's chances of winning trophies, while he believes either Andres Iniesta or Lionel Messi will win the Ballon d'Or

Cesc Fabregas is confident that Barcelona can be successful this season as long as they manage to maintain their current form.

The Catalans recorded a 4-0 win over Espanyol on Sunday to extend their La Liga lead over Atletico Madrid to 11 points, and Fabregas is hugely optimistic about his side's chances at silverware.

"Breaks tend to affect the rhythm of a team, but we seem to have come back in the same shape we finished in December. If the team keeps on like this, with the motivation we’ve got, there is no end to what we can do," Fabregas told Barca TV.

"The team have many tactical variations all over the pitch and that is very positive, because it confuses the other team. Then we have the individual skill to finish off the moves."

The former Arsenal midfielder also briefly discussed Monday's 2012 Fifa Ballon d'Or awards, and he is confident that one of his team-mates will come out victorious.

He added: "[Lionel] Messi or [Andres] Iniesta will win it. Whatever happens we’ll be happy with it – for me, they are two born winners."

The winner of the 2012 Fifa Ballon d'Or will be announced at a gala in Zurich later on Monday.
